Some beaches near Fort Myers and Naples in fine shape with no algae
With all of the recent bad news about Lake Okeechobee-stained water, algae blooms in the Caloosahatchee and red tide in the Gulf of Mexico, a day at the beach might not seem like such a good idea.
But there is still plenty of coastline in the Fort Myers and Naples area that's in good shape.
"The official word is things look good here," said Matt Kruse, Lovers Key assistant park manager. "No reports of red tide, the air clear and clean and we're not seeing any dead fish."
Here’s a list of six sandy spots in Southwest Florida that, as of Friday afternoon, had no advisories about potentially dangerous bacteria, reports of red tide or dark, murky water carried by Lake Okeechobee releases.
